"Can We Visit?" They Sang.

"Children make you want to start life over."
~Muhammad Ali

"Not today." I explained to these 4 adorable faces, after they were rapping on the door.
"Well then, can we please have a freezee??" one bartered.
"It's cold out." I argued.
"No, it's not. We're sledding. We're warm." they countered.
"Okay." I folded.

Mr. Freezees: they're not just for summertime anymore...

"For an answer Jesus called over a child, whom he stood in the middle of the room, and said, "I'm telling you, once and for all, that unless you return to square one and start over like children, you're not even going to get a look at the kingdom, let alone get in. Whoever becomes simple and elemental again, like this child, will rank high in God's kingdom. What's more, when you receive the childlike on my account, it's the same as receiving me." Matthew 18:2-5
